My busy January.

I saw this pattern and had to make it.  It took me just three evenings to crochet it. I used the yarn used in the pattern but had to search around for it from a UK dealer. Its a wool mixture called Bamboo Ewe and the colours have delightful names: Geranium, Lipstick, Sprout and Snapdragon. I think the names are as lovely as the colours themselves
I love the bright colours and wore it to church on sunday. I had lots of admiring comments which was nice.
Crocheting is back in vogue! 
As is knitting..  my efforts for the January challenge for SOM group was in my previous post.
Lovely and stripy socks, just what I like.
And of course I stitched a reindeer for  the Christmas Ornie challenge.
Now I need some new sock yarn for February and I have dug out my JC Christmas edition for my February ornie.

As well as this I have managed to work on all three of my WIPs and will show pics next time.
And I stitched Jaclyn's RR... So quite a busy month.
